    Tristan, these are fantastic. That horse is absolutely stunning. The fire as well.

    One crit regarding the third painting. The angles of the books on the far left of the shelf seem off to me. Could it be and optical illusion with the diminishing sizes of the books? Maybe I'm just too tire to see straight. Overall, it doesn't harm the piece any

    Man, wow you CAN paint that's for sure. the Fire Horse piece looks wonderful. The overall ambiance looks great though I think it lacks more reflective lights on the girl and the horse. That's my 2 cents but I wouldn't be able to do anything approching the quality of this piece...

    nice mood and feel for these.
    and the horse gives great warmt and heat. you captured the fire in a very great way. and the cat in the cemetary, very nice capture of the moon light.
    gotto figure out how you do that some day.

    poetry for the eyes.

    Ahh, love the first one, very nice attention to detail in the fire and, well, all of it!

    I have to agree with VirusArtist though, the lack of shadows makes this image look a little bit wierd.

    Tristan great to see another horse piece from you. Your black horse one is a piece literally seared in my brain forever in the lobe for coolness.

    The cat/tombstone piece is groovy, especially digging your grass texture.

    The cat library piece is great but could be way more dramatic with shadows.

    ditto.
    when ever i start making things too difficult,
    i think back to that piece,
    and say: "hmmm...simple is good!"

    this one has the same appeal.
    nicely done.

    Great stuff. I really love the first cat piece. The night light is hypnotizing. Wish I could see the Illustrators show.
